Talking about your Research
4-5:30pm, Room 97, McNeil Building
Thursday 17th October, 2013
This program is part of the 25th Academic Career Conference (ACC). You can find a list of the full of ACC programs by viewing our calendar page.
When you are on the academic job market, you will need to be able to talk about your research to both specialists and non-specialists in a clear, concise and interesting manner, and in a variety of different venues. What do you say? How long should you talk? How specific should you be? What is the goal? How much time should you spend talking about past versus future/proposed research? In this workshop, career advisors will explore the different venues where you might have to talk about your research during the academic job hunt, and will give some suggestions for preparing to talk about your research in a variety of different settings. Then, you’ll practice doing so…
Here are some additional resources to get you thinking about how to talk about your research:
· The challenges of answering the “tell us about your dissertation” question are discussed in this blog too
· I touch briefly on the importance of talking effectively about your research in this blog
· Don’t forget the TED talks: www.ted.com/topics/science
· And if you are wondering how best to boil down the key aspects of your research to make it interesting and understandable to a broad audience, then consider “dancing your PhD” like these brave souls! Would you be able to identify the most important aspect of your research if someone were to ask you this question today?
The PowerPoint used in this workshop will be available on the program calendar a few days after the workshop. There is no need to pre-register for this workshop.
You can view the complete schedule of workshops and speaker programs for Master's students and doctoral students and postdocs on the Career Services website, and we look forward to seeing you at some of the other Academic Career Conference programs as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this program series.
